Brendan Donnelly


Who am I?

Lifestyle & Environmental Portrait Photographer

Why should you shoot with me?

Being photographed should never be an unpleasant or boring activity. I like to get to know who is on the other side of my lens, the person(s), not just a subject and capture their unique personality, this results in fun, laid back shoots with no pressure. I am a strong believer that having your picture taken should be an immersive experience.  I'm all about capturing honest, authentic moments. I like to let a scene play out in front of me and capture it as it happens naturally, I don't like to interfere too much and micro manage poses ( unless I have to!). Capturing the raw emotions and intimate moments is what I love most, I believe that sometimes the most special moments are the in-between ones.
